As surprising as it may seem, the footballing future for Pedro may lie beyond the Camp Nou. His contract with the Catalan club expires in 2016 and the player is unhappy about his lack of regular starts in the Barça XI (he’s played an accumulative total of 1.626 minutes in La Liga, Copa and Champions League). The Canary Islander is starting to consider, what was unthinkable just months ago, the possibility of listening to offers from would be suitors. “I have a contract, but one can never tell what may happen”, he recently commented.
Club officials still, however see the player as “a fundamental piece”, due to his “dedication and sacrifice in each match and at every training session”. The English Premier league have been alerted with both José Mourinho at Chelsea and Louis van Gaal at Manchester United paying close attention to the players situation at Barça knowing that he’s out of contract as of June 2016. A projected fee of between 25 and 30 million euro has been cited as the fee the Barça club officials would be looking to secure for any potential deal.
One club in particular stand out as a potential destination for Pedro . Last Summer, Arsenal made numerous inquiries as to the players availability but these approaches were pushed away with the players agents stating that Pedro was committed to Barça and keen to play football under new coach Luis Enrique. The question mark surrounding any possible future move to the North London club pertains to the uncertain future of coach, Arsène Wenger.
